Federal Partners Secures $40.4M in Financing from BB&T

JLL arranges financing for Liberty Center I, II and III in Chantilly, Virginia

WASHINGTON, D.C., March 2, 2015 — JLL's Capital Markets experts announced today that they arranged financing in the amount of $40.4 million on behalf of Federal Partners. BB&T provided the seven year loan for the three-building, 409,478-square-foot Class A office portfolio.

Liberty Center I, II and III are located in the prestigious Westfields Corporate Center, Fairfax County's premier office park development and the preferred location for cybersecurity and defense-related industry tenants. The properties are leased to three investment-grade tenants. All three properties feature enhanced security features, audio-visual capabilities and SCIF space necessary to conduct business with government intelligence agencies.

Executive Vice President Jon Goldstein, Managing Director Wesley Boatwright and Executive Vice President Mike Yavinsky led the JLL team on this transaction.

"The portfolio's outstanding tenancy, prominent location within Westfields Corporate Center and exceptional sponsorship were all factors that generated significant lender interest," commented Jon Goldstein. "Ultimately, BB&T was selected because it offered the optimal combination of loan terms and flexibility."
